Block Workshops

This year we are doing a Quilt-Along as a guild using the Folksy pattern by Bridget Dermott from the Modern Quilt Guild. As part of the Quilt-Along, we are hosting skill-building workshops for each of the blocks in the quilt, as well as a FMQ and binding workshop.

The block workshops will be taught by guild members. Workshops are free to CVAMQG members and open to non-members for a $10 contribution per workshop.

Members and non-members must register for the workshops in advance. This ensures the instructors have enough handouts and the room has enough tables and ironing stations. Supply lists and handouts will be emailed to registrants before each workshop.
